Marine Mechanic: Jason, Marine Mechanic replied 2 years ago

You did disconnect the shift rod and it still will not drop? Is that correct?

do you mean both ends
Marine Mechanic: Jason, Marine Mechanic replied 2 years ago

There is only 1 end that is disconnectable.

You wrote that you did disconnect the shift rod... .What exactly did you disconnect?

I disconnected shift rod that is connected shift cable. the diagram does not match my motor. a manual I have says to remove the shift rod screw, which I can not find.
Marine Mechanic: Jason, Marine Mechanic replied 2 years ago

The screw is tucked underneath of the carb. If you are facing the front of the motor, what you want to do is look in under the carb on the right hand side. Have a helper move the shifter back and forth while you peek in there with a flash light, and you will see it. Its hard to get to so you will really have to look for it.
